After a very bad marriage in which her husband constantly cheated on her Naomi Delacroix is determined to stop being such a doormat and let her inner Tigress out to play. If this means unleashing her Tigress on the too-sexy Royce Powell then so be it, the only problem being is that he seems to make her inner Tigress purr…I had a grin going the entire time I read this book, it may have made me look slightly insane and maybe scared small children, but I was too involved reading the book to really notice. This is a great book to read if you are looking for something light, a little sexy and very funny.
Although the romance wasn’t the best, Royce was soooo perfect that it got a little ridiculous in the end. How could one guy (who happens to not only be filthy rich but also disgustingly hot) be so damn perfect and say all the right things (and mean them!) all the time? Especially when Naomi gave no indication really that she was interested, even though she was, I can’t see a guy steaming through that amount of rejection. But despite it being completely unrealistic it was sweet and Royce was hot and reading Naomi trying to resist Royce’s advances was so hilarious that I didn’t really mind.
A great quick read Animal Instincts will keep you smiling and leave you refreshed for something new.
Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
